Don't expect help - we need to tackle the recruitment crisis ourselves


A positive view of general practice, are we reading the same article? "How close we are to the end", "how desperate the situation is" , does not sound very positive to me. I have spent the last 18 yrs telling friends and family that if you do not like your job, get another and that I would carry on working if I won the lottery. Now I would be ringing the area team with glee to give notice the next day, and would probably have disappeared by Monday to leave the problem to them. The state wants the yanks to move in, and the public place no value on primary care. Area teams are either run by idiots or there is a conspiracy to destroy General Practice, I will leave the reader to decide which it is. If only the wife would agree to emigrate. As it is I will have to hold onto the end and hopefully at least make some profit when the sale of goodwill is allowed and big business moves in. Not a good career choice for anyone now.
